* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' gives us a ''delicious'' sarcastic subversion of this trope:
-->'''Clayface, to outnumbered Batman:''' You didn't think I'd come here without [[{{LegionOfDoom}} reinforcements]], did ya?
-->'''{{Batman}}, completely deadpan:''' Wish I'd thought of that. ''*cue the entire Justice League coming in*'' OhWait - [[{{Cheshire Cat Grin}} I did]].

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': During the Battle City arc, Insector Haiga convinces a kid (who he later double-crosses) to sabotage Jonouchi's deck before dueling him, giving Haiga a pretty serious advantage. Jonouchi [[CheatersNeverProsper manages to win anyway]], and when he demands Haiga's two locator cards and Insect Queen card, Haiga suddenly [[VillainWantsMercy decides to plead for mercy]]. Jonouchi's reply is pretty much, "you should have thought of that before cheating, stupid."

* In one disturbing example from ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', a man is framed for raping a teenage girl, and is subsequently abused in prison. He pleads with the officers for protection but they just tell him, "You should have thought about the pecking order before you raped that girl." [[spoiler:He ends up getting killed.]]

* When someone complains about the severity of their punishment or even about being punished in the first place, the authority figure pronouncing the punishment or carrying out the punishment will tell them they should have thought of that before committing any wrongdoing (i.e. a parent punishing a child, a judge sentencing a convict and so on).
